Peter Pilotto S/S 2017
Mood board: Multicoloured garments are par for the course at Peter Pilotto, and this season was no different, but the designers are clearly edging away from the digital side of things with a softer palette and watercolour effects. Bright hues are still a mainstay, but the atmosphere is now more natural and sun-filled.
Best in show: Tops that left shoulders and waists bare and which were knotted at the chest or draped along shoulders, gave the silhouettes a subtly sensual air. Paired with calf-grazing flared skirts, they felt mature and romantic.
Team work: The whimsical embroidered patches of both real and fantastical flora and fauna in this S/S 2017 collection, were created by the British artist Francis Upritchard. The design duo has long admired Upritchard’s colourful sculpture and this is one of a number of collaborations they’ve undertaken over the years.
